History & Mission

Terrebonne Council on Aging, Inc. (TCOA) was established 51 years ago on October 7, 1969, and incorporated on September 10, 1975, as a private, non-profit organization that provides social services to individuals who are frail, homebound by reason of illness or incapacitating disability or otherwise isolated; and older individuals with the greatest social or economic need (with particular attention to low-income minority individuals) who reside in Terrebonne Parish.

TCOA is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 11 citizens of Terrebonne Parish and meets monthly. The Board of Directors establishes policies and procedures and is fiscally responsible for all of the actions of TCOA.

TCOA is a community focal point where older persons can receive services and participate in activities which enhance their dignity, support their independence, and encourage their involvement in, and with, the community. TCOA provides activities that reflect the experience and skills of our elderly citizens and responds to their diverse needs and interests.

As part of a comprehensive community strategy to meet the needs of older adults, TCOA not only offers services and activities, but also links participants with resources offered by other agencies.

Just a quick thanks for the wonderful collection of goods you delivered to us this past month. Such a thoughtful thing to do! I frequently saw we have the best council of all, and this gift verifies it. Once again, Thanks.

Thanks to Council on Aging. I know that this is little but I still want to thank you. The lunches you bring me mean so much. I have so many problems standing in one place to even cook a meal. I also want to thank you for my birthday gift. It was such a wonderful surprise. Thank you. I bless you all for the wonderful job you are doing. God bless you and keep you all safe. I love you all.

Just want to thank you for the most thoughtful gift basket for Mrs. I.S. on her 95th birthday. It really cheered her up and made her day extra special. Thanks also for the meals you provide and the courteous driver who delivers them everyday with always a smile and a kind word! It means a lot to those who are homebound. Again, thanks for all that you do.

On behalf of the Veterans of this area we wish to thank you for the assistance with hot meals for our homeless Veterans. You do so much for our seniors, but to help veterans too, goes above and beyond the call. Thank you again for your help. God Bless America and supporters like you.
